The 2018 Hero Super Splendor gets a cosmetic makeover this year, including a fresh set of graphics.
2018 Hero Super Splendor: The Hero Splendor has always been one of the best selling motorcycles for the Indian motorcycle manufacturer. The company has now launched the Super Splendor in India at Rs 57,190. The upgraded 125cc commuter, to refresh your memory, is outfitted with Hero’s in-house built 124.7cc non-sloper engine that is also found in the new Glamour found in 2017.
The newest Super Splendor’s motor generates 11.5hp at 7,500rpm and 11Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Those of you really clued to the Super Splendor’s key stats will determine this as a increment of 1.9hp and 0.65Nm of torque. Like from the Glamour, the Super Splendor has a four-speed gearbox and now weighs 124kg, which can be 3kg heavier than the outgoing model.
It is not just a brand new motor that differentiates the brand new Super Splendor in the old version, but also a bunch of other value additions. To list a couple, it currently gets a somewhat sportier-looking chair but one which is company, reasonably broad and comfy. The side panels are revised, also and although it isn’t boxy anymore, Hero has made a conscious choice to not upset the flat profile of the bike. Based on Hero, the typical Indian commuter buyer considers boxier layouts and straighter lines signify ruggedness and stability — and we surely will not competition Hero’s knowledge regarding the Indian commuter marketplace.
Moving on, the tail section is a little more upswept than previously and now receives a neatly-integrated LED tail-lamp in addition to compared to angular, hexagonal unit onto the outgoing model.
With a cost of Rs 57,190, the Super Splendor is competitively priced (but apparently supplied by Bajaj’s generally competitive pricing), even though it does not offer you a disk brake even as an alternative.
